I was shock when I saw a long line of people waiting before noon. I was in the restaurant after 15 minutes of waiting. The rolled tacos were recommended by the staff and they were excellent. I had the best tortillas in San Diego. They...More

After stopping at a couple of food trucks earlier in the week, we wanted a sit-down meal as good and authentic as we used to in Houston. This is the place, and as much as we were ready to wait in line, it disappeared as...More

This place deserves the line it always has in front of it, but that line moves very quickly because the service is fast and the menu is simple we highly recommend the roll tacos, five per order, and the tamale. The tacos are big and...More

Sometimes you need to go out of your comfort zone to discover great places. This was my experience at Las Cuatro Milpas. I knew it was going to be good when I saw the line outside. The line moved fast, so don't let it scare...More

BEST TORTILLAS! Even though I'm born and raised in SD, this was my second time here. I never would go because of the line, there's always a line especially on the weekends but it can go pretty fast, always depends on who is in line....More

Prepare to wait at lunchtime. Bring your appetite. Bring your cash--cash only!! There is nothing like it-- simple pure Mexican food- staff are friendly--dining areas are simple and clean. Everyone should eat here at least once-- lucky us, we came here twice in 6 days!

Went on a Saturday near 1:00. Waited about 30 minutes. Cash only! Inexpensive pricing and nothing fancy. Tamale was very good and I loved the beans. Rice was over cooked. I ordered a chicken burrito and it was very bland and a little dry. The...More

Amazing food with a simple yet comprehensive menu. We did the tacos, tamale, fresh tortillas and their pork rolled tacos. So worth the wait in line. Guys in Bentleys pulling up to eat. Lol.

We waited 30 minutes in the hot San Diego sun to get a look at the front door. Inside is a very rudimentary establishment. The menu is very small. But... That’s where the negativity ends. I tried one of everything. It was way too much...More

When we came straight from the airport and parked, we were a little unsure about the neighborhood. My husband and kids were starving, so the hour wait was doubtful at first, but boy are we glad we toughed it out! The food was to die...More
